torino roll bar fit a 68 galaxie?

im looking to put in a simple 6 point roll bar in my convertible galaxie. My friend says he can get me a competition engineering 6 point kit for a torino. You guys think itll fit? Obviously the main concern would be the main hoop. What do you guys think?

What year Torino? The early mid-size or the later yard-barge?

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!

68-69 Torino is the same car as Fairlane, not a Galaxie. Torino is uni-body chassis, Galaxie is a full frame car. I don't think it will fit. Get one for a Torino and you'll be good.

i understand that but its not like the roll bar cares what its getting welded to. Im just wondering if the torino would be wide enough for the galaxie.
